“Gray clouds circle above my head

The sky rumbles and the specks hitting my face

turn to golf balls”

I walk down the street.

Drips splash.

My pants cling to my legs uncomfortably.

Cold specks hit my face.

Gray clouds circle above my head.

The sky rumbles and the specks hitting my face

turn to golf balls

blocking my way

as if I’m forbidden to go home.
